Selling Highlands NC Homes, REALTOR Better Than FSBO
When it comes to selling Highlands NC homes a REALTOR is better than FSBO. FSBO is an acronym for For Sale By Owner, a route many sellers want to go in an effort to make more money. Understanding what a REALTOR can do for you prior to listing a Highlands NC home for sale is an instrumental part of the selling process.
Going the FSBO route is attractive for sellers who do not like the idea of a sales commission. A typical real estate transaction involves a 6% commission. This 6% is typically broken up as 3% to the seller’s broker and 3% to the buyer’s broker. The percentage can be negotiated as can the splits.
Another reason a seller may choose the FSBO route is because he may not understand the process. Sticking a for sale sign in the yard and having a home ready for showings appears easy. The process of selling may sound even better in a hot market.
A Highlands NC REALTOR understands the selling process and has experience. In addition your REALTOR may be able to get more money for your listing. The reality is that you want to sell your home. A local REALTOR has connections that reach far beyond a sign in the front yard or an online or print advertisement. A list of clients and access to all REALTORs in the Highlands NC area are just the beginning.
Another great bonus of a REALTOR is that she can be the one clearing her schedule for showings. This saves you time and takes away the inconvenience of being available at the drop of a hat. When you get an offer to purchase your hoe your REALTOR will help you negotiate for your best interest. This includes price and contingencies. In addition he REALTOR follows through to ensure that all of the steps of the contract are adhered to.
